Fox Summer Premiere Dates

Fox has set the premiere dates for their summer series including the debut of Gordon Ramsay’s new show, Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back. Other series returning to the network’s primetime lineup this May and June include Beat Shazam, Love Connection, MasterChef, and So You think You Can Dance.

Fox also announced they’ll air the 2018 Miss USA competition on Monday, May 21st at 8pm ET/PT. The two-hour broadcast will be hosted by Vanessa and Nick Lachey.

Beat Shazam Hosted by Jamie Foxx: The series pits teams of two against the clock and each other as they attempt to identify the biggest hit songs of all time. In the end, the team with the most money banked will outlast the competition and go against Shazam, the popular song identification app, for the chance to win up to one million dollars. Additionally, actress, model and writer Corinne Foxx, daughter of Jamie Foxx, joins Beat Shazam as the new deejay. Celebrity guests to appear this season include Demi Lovato, Shaquille O’Neal, Smokey Robinson and Michael Bolton, among others.

Love Connection Hosted by Andy Cohen: The one-hour series amps up the original hit dating show for today’s audiences. Each hour episode features single men and/or women in search of love, as Cohen brings his personal brand of audacious fun to the series.

MasterChef: On MasterChef, award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay, acclaimed chef Aarón Sánchez and renowned restaurateur Joe Bastianich will put the latest group of contestants through a series of challenging elimination rounds in order to turn one home cook into a culinary master.

Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back: The brand-new series will feature Ramsay driving to struggling restaurants across the country in his state-of-the-art mobile kitchen and command center, Hell On Wheels. In today’s social media-driven world, everyone is an amateur food critic, and restaurants often find themselves one bad review away from shutting their doors. So, for the first time ever, Ramsay will try to bring each of these failing restaurants back from the brink of disaster – all in just 24 hours.

First, he’ll send in a team to record secret surveillance. Then, he’ll go in undercover to see the problems first-hand. As the clock ticks down, Ramsay and his team will transform these restaurants with spectacular renovations, fresh new menus and hope for the future. It all builds to the end of the 24 hours, when grand re-openings of these restaurants will be held for the public.

So You Think You Can Dance: Hosted by Cat Deeley and featuring Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy and Vanessa Hudgens as resident judges, So You Think You Can Dance season 15 premieres June 4th. Highly-skilled dancers between the ages of 18 and 30 will showcase their talents in various dance styles, including contemporary, tap, hip-hop, ballroom, animation, breaking and more. Those who are selected to move on to the SYTYCD studio will work with world-renowned choreographers and compete LIVE each week for America’s votes in a variety of styles. Contestants will be eliminated weekly until a winner is named on the season finale.
